The MACMA (Cultural Association of the Marina Alta) presented, this past Sunday, in Jesús Pobre, the recipe book 'The confectionery at the Marina Alta'. A work that vindicates the validity of traditional sweets and at the same time underlines the essence of the ingredients of proximity, as the mayor of Jesús Pobre, Javier Scotto and the councilor of Culture, Josep Fornés pointed out in the introduction of the book.
In the presentation of the volume, the MACMA manager, Jovi Seser, summarized the near 100 recipes that guide the work and the arrival of the Moors. With this recipe book, the Commonwealth intends to claim the reintegration in the kitchens of the houses of the region and, above all, in the kitchens of the restaurants.
The bakery at the Marina Alta It is a project conceived by Vicent Ortuño, founder of MACMA, which was published ten years ago on the occasion of the commemoration of the 400 years of the expulsion of the Moors and was exhausted during the first year of publication.
The current reissue of the work aims to bring this gastronomic legacy to the new generations and has also been distributed to the bookstores of the region and the neighboring regions to meet the demand for copies and thus expand the echo of the initiative.
After the presentation in the market of Jesús Pobre, the MACMA will continue to present the work throughout the month of December in the municipalities of the region. On Saturday 7 day the book will be presented at the City of Sagra at 19 hours. On Wednesday 11 of December, the cookbook will arrive at the Publics Library of Dénia in the form of a presentation-snack and on the day 13 will be in the Vall de Gallinera, in Benialí, within the IV Fiesta de l'Óleo.
